Worst case scenario long term full recovery success
« on: October 25, 2018, 03:56:59 PM »
Almost 3 years since I last PMO.

I'm cured, I have sex, I feel fine the next day, I've recently been going for a 2nd just 20 minutes after ejaculation. I've never, EVER been able to do this.

The truth is, I was worse case scenario. Started PMO age 14-15, absolutely loved it. I didn't have a real sexual partner till I was 22-23. I couldn't get it up. Never knew why. Went on for years, sometimes got a half arsed one, and to come I'd really have to work at it. Did it for years, eventually PMO with no hard on. Pathetic. So I quit age 30 when I realised what I'd done. It took me 2 months to get a hard on from a BJ. But for the next 2.5 years I was inconsistent as shit. But I kept going, knowing that my sexual experiences were beginning to get better. Quitting PMO really DOES improve erections, and decrease anxiety. Overstimulation, desensitisation and dopamine receptor weakening is real.

I've had crippling anxiety my entire life, I mean it. Quitting PMO definitely helped. But I still wasn't quite there, despite 2.5 years of strict as hell recovery, working out and discipline. I felt a thousand times better... But not quite myself still.

Couple of months ago I got my hormones done, low T... Dangerously damn low. They put me on a small amount of T gel, and shit... I feel like a dude, for the first time in 15 years. Erection issues, fixed... Anxiety, fixed.

Please don't misunderstand this message. I had the T levels of an 85 year old man, T has put me at a "normal range". A range similar to most of you guys.

My message is, I was worse case... I think I was probably cured after 12 months, but just didn't realise as I had a low T issue going on behind the scenes.

I don't feel like celebrating this. I dedicated so much time to this no PMO. I obsessed over it, researched the shit out of it. Daily I was listening to new podcasts, reading journals, with a sad hope that one day I'd finally be cured. I never stood a chance with the T I had.

I had a varacocele as a kid, that must've killed my T back then, I then got testicular cancer, but the Dr's said "your T is in range"... Yea, thanks Dr's...

My message:
1. PIED worst case scenario is curable with dedication and discipline.

2.  Get your hormones checked by a HORMONE Specialist (Endocrinologist?) to rule it out.

3. Don't bullshit yourself or us.

Congrats!  Very interesting about the testosterone.  I've read some that said it did nothing for them and others that said it was a Godsend.  I'm glad you got it figured out and turned the corner.  If you don't mind me asking, what was your t-level?  I got tested when I started rebooting too and was also told I was in normal range.  But after rebooting this long I'm starting to wonder if maybe it's something else...   Again, congratulations.
Been rebooting since May 2015.  A handful of relapses in that time.  Have SLOWLY improved since then.  Finally starting to see some lasting success since summer of 2018.

This is really encouraging to read as mine is a very similar story, albeit I started slightly younger (12-13). Though my testosterone levels actually came out slightly high in a recent blood test, so this isn't a factor for me it would seem. I've done reboots before and managed 120 days once but always relapsed - my mind seemed to decide that as I hadn't improved in that time I must be a lost cause. But it's important to remember (and your story demonstrates) that it can take a lot, lot longer than that. I'm currently around day 50.

I'd be keen to know if your reboot included masturbation at all?

Hi

My T was 8.8-12 nmol/l. After working out for 2.5 years I got it to 14nmol/l.

Every test result was "in range" bit it was only when I got my bioavailable test checked that I was told I had low testosterone and should go on TRT if suffering from low libido symptoms.

I M twice in 2.5 years, once for sperm test and once 6 months in...

After starting TRT I had to M because the sexual desire was too overwhelming and I couldn't sleep. I followed no knock on effects of doing this though. I would still wake with MW and have a good day despite M. I haven't looked at P since I started the reboot. I've been sent various nudes from girls on Tinder recently though, and I haven't M to them.

Im still having consistencies, but its definitely better than few years back. I could get hard by my own touch, & getting hard easier when women is touching me.

Prob is now I still Ejac too fast. Any tips?

Thanks. Yea PE is a thing, especially when you haven't M in so long. I find part of that is an anxiety thing too... Like for me, I'd be anxious about performing, so take a while to get hard- but then a switch would go on and I'd be overwhelmed by the pleasure. This is possibly controversial and I wouldn't try this until you're definitely cured from PIED, but I've used Viagra a few times, not to increase erection but I find it numbs a bit and I can last longer. It also gives me a bit more confidence to go for a second or third time as it takes the pressure off "will it work again"?  Though, I prefer not to use it because it feels better without.
